Check your firewall logs then. This sounds suspicious.

Are you using anything like Limewire or DC++?

You must reinstall your firewall with clean installation and allow each application if require. Most important dont allow any software as "act as server". I am using zonealarm and this software ask for every software to use trusted area of windows, internet, act server. Do not allow any software to act as server, this might solve problem.

Somebody is accessing your shared folders (maybe default shared folders). I guess you are using Windows XP; in Control Panal -> Administrative Tools -> Services. In services list, double click on “Server”. First stop that service and then change the Startup Type to Disable. Restart your computer.

After disabling this service, no one will be able to access shared folders in your computer (hopefully, you don’t have LAN in your home).

However, keep this in mind that hackers can create and inject software that still copy files from your computer without standard Windows’ file sharing network protocols.

Stay safe!

Fe-Aman Allah.
